Call for Proposals 2012-2013: UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere

The University of Florida Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere has several calls for proposals that are open with upcoming deadlines. See all of their calls for 2012-2013 and especially note these:

Support for Workshops and Speaker Series in the Humanities (deadline 27 January 2012)

In order to support some of the best and most exciting work taking place within the humanities and to build bridges between the humanities and related fields, the Center sponsors collaborative exchanges between faculty and students by supporting workshops and speaker series that promote interdisciplinary themes and highlight faculty and graduate student achievements. Organizers will use funds to invite innovative faculty from outside the University to participate in these collaborations with resident faculty, students, and members of the wider community. These events will be held during the 2012-2013 academic year.

Rothman Summer Fellowships in the Humanities (deadline 10 February 2012)

With the objective of supporting ranked faculty advance their careers, the Center will once again offer fellowships to UF faculty in the humanities in summer 2012. These grants will allow recipients to make significant progress on existing creative/research projects. Although the competition for Summer Fellowships in the Humanities will be open to faculty of all ranks, special consideration will be given to those whose projects will directly support their bids for promotion to associate or full ranked status. The Center expects to be able to fund four or five awards of $2000-$3000 in 2012.
